After 4 week challenge I thought that it could be nice to take some break. I was wondering whether I’m gonna miss cycling or not.
I wasn’t cycling regularly 2 months before today. I was just cycling some days and riding it for commuting sometimes. But it wasn’t easy to cycle for commuting every time. Than I quit my job interestingly and I decided to cycle while I was looking for a new job.
I tried to cycle everyday with a 5 miles a day challenge as some of you know. After one month challenge I became exhausting and I’ve decided to finish it at the end of the 31st day. Because number of the days I bored was increasing and it was probably causing to decrease my performance. Than I didn’t want to be bored with cycling completely.
I thought that it might be better to take some break, maybe 1-2 days. I wondered the feeling while I’m not cycling. Frankly, I wanted to miss cycling.
To me, it doesn’t matter whether it’s raining or the sun is shining or whatever: as long as I’m riding a bike I know I’m the luckiest guy in the world – Mark Cavendish
I took one week break!
After taking one week break I can say that I really missed cycling so much. It wasn’t like withdrawal syndrome of course, but If I were cycling for a long long time I could feel like that way. I didn’t feel good, really, I felt tired. I felt tired last days of the challenge, too, but it was better than this kind of tiredness.
Normally I was planning my day for cycling everyday while challenging. Even in the late hours or when I was exhausted etc. I did it everyday except one day, but I compensated it with doubling the distance in the next day. I felt like I should do something everyday after taking the break. My body was trying to tell something to me.
So, I didn’t like “no cycling days”. I’m gonna go on cycling from tomorrow even I couldn’t do it everyday. I hope each bike lover keeps cycling anytime. Believe me, cycling is a really good activity!
